It is your responsibility to supply Martin & Cox with accurate detailed contact information for these representatives. If for any reason we are unable to obtain access at the agreed times we cannot guarantee the completion of the installation by the agreed times. We confirm that we will use our best endeavors to meet the timetable. We cannot accept liability for any possible costs occurred due to us being unable to access the premises at the agreed times which have been out of our control.
3.2 When installing the flowers if for any reason the venue representatives refuse Martin & Cox to position or use pre-arranged area of the venue to display the flowers or products all efforts will be made to rectify this, however Martin & Cox will respect the venue’s decision and position or install the flowers in the next most suitable area/position.
